Scripture Union Scotland's vision is to see every child and young person in Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus.  We are a national charity, with almost 100 staff and over 2,000 volunteers.  Our activities take place in schools, at outdoor activity centres, online, at churches and in the community.

Every year, hundreds of children and their families hear the Good News about Jesus through SU Scotland missions and holiday clubs. Across the country, in church halls, on beaches and out in the community, dedicated teams of volunteers can be seen helping young people discover God’s love, often for the first time.
